Ed's story

Overwhelmed by the amazing day from the Story Conference today. The passion, the thought, the ideas, and the dreams that come from this conference are mind boggling. If you follow my blog you know that when I am at a conference I write...I write alot. Today I was able to sit back, listen, learn, and be inspired by many creative people. I am struggling to put it all in perspective but if you want to see how my mind was working just check out my twitter feed from the day. God used one presenter in an incredible way in my life today and that was Ed Dodson. Ed found out 10 years ago he had ALS and was given a short time to live. Ten years later God is still using Ed to convey a message of redemption and hope. Ed said two things that I wanted to post tonight and you may have read them on my Facebook or twitter feed but I can't get them out of my mind. Ed said...

When you live in fear everything is overwhelming.

Relationship is way more important than who is right and who is wrong.

In life, fear and relationships shape us so much. I was reminded to live life one day at a time. I was reminded to not allow fear to shape my choices but rather hope and love. I saw once again that people matter to God. How I relate to others matters and says much about the person I am and the God I follow. If you have never heard Ed's story take 10 minutes and allow his story to shape who you are today...
